    Default Does any one use Boading balls as a part of there training?

    I have been using the Boading balls for many years, for building dexterity. Recently may father was diagnosed with final stage of pancreatic cancer. After telling him the different theory's behind the use of the boading balls he started using them. So far he has not had to use any meds. to regulate his white a red blood cell count and also his bone density which has helped with the pain associated with this illnesses. And it also release a blockage in stomach area which he was hospitalize a few weeks prior to. We never thought to use it that way but its helped a few times since then. We also are do Qigong and Tai chi. This is all of corse in conjunction with some great docs. I was just wondering if any one has any more info on the Boading balls or any other healing aspects of the arts that may help us in our battle.

    I have also used the balls for many years now, on and off. I have read about the health benefits associated but your story is really encouraging. As for other healing aspects, you have covered what I woudl have thought about with the chi kung (qi gong) and the thai chi practise. There is an exercise called "standing on pole" which comes from the internal arts. Amy seems to have a fair degree of knowledge when it comes to internal practise and health.

    Have you looked at homeopathy, reiki, TCM and other 'alternative therapies' to supplemnet what the doc's are doing?

    They are two spheres in equal is size and weight there is a chime in the middle and if you find the right path you won't hear the chimes. It took me many years to find it or just my wife telling me if she hears them one more time she'll kill me!! The origin is from the Ming dynasty as know as the "Song dynasty" they were originally created for the king as a gift. They were said to create dexterity in the mind, body and spirit thru simplicity. For the other benefits that I've found that comes along with them, but only thru practice can you really understand them. There is much more philosophy and theory behind the boading balls you can find some more on the net. For what worked for my dad may not work for all but it cant hurt. If was good enough for the king, its good enough for my dad.
